    About 15 years ago, I used to hunt a local farm for early goose and deer. I had been hunting this one field all autumn and the cows were kept in the lower fields. Come deer season, I'm walking in through this same field, on my way to the hemlock hollow on the far side. It's about 0545 and pitch black. I'm about half way across the field when I hear the loud collective MOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! of about 30 head of cattle. These things come ROARING up through the field right at me, yelling MOOO! MOOO!! the whole way up. I calculate that, no matter how fast I run, I'll never make the fence before they get to me. So, I stood my ground and prayed that they'd stop: "Ohpleasepleasepleasepleasepleasestoppleasestopple asestoppleasestop!". I only had my flintlock and didn't carry a sidearm at the time, so I had one shot only.

    Fortunately, they stopped about 5-8 yards away. I had tripped the set trigger, but not the main one. They just stood there and stared at me and followed me down to the fence by the hemlocks.

    I relayed the story to the farmer later, excluding the part about pointing my rifle and the set trigger, and he just laughed at me. " They just thought you were going to feed them. Probably thought you were me."

    Big and dumb, maybe. But still 20X my weight.
    I could see that as a reason.
    I once hit a buck with my light while spotlighting , he came running in right up to the window of the truck.
    I am guessing he didn't make it through the hunting season.

    And I would have to ask what game regulation you bent in the past to give you that view?

    why would I have had to break a regulation to know these sanctimonious assholes are power hungry pricks who think they own the world?

    Give 'em a break. They only get to play cop a few months out of the year.
    There are only two kinds of guns. Those I have and those I want.

    So what you are saying is that you don't want to answer the question that was asked. Is that it?

    I thought you would figure out the answer, silly me

    Never broke a game regulation in my life. Does not change the fact that game wardens are some of the worst ego cases in uniform

    Absolutely. My best friend was a deputy WCO. Great guy, but played the "McGarret" role, max charges for minimum violation as directed by his WCO. Always had the local DJ reduce or throw out the charges. He passed in 2014, may he rest in peace.

    Anyone who has ever been on a farm will know that cattle can be very dangerous. We raise beef cattle, their blood is mostly hereford, but mixed with some other breeds.

    Cows with calves can turn into murderous bitches if you aren't careful. Now, most cows or cows+calves are docile, but there is always that one where natural instincts take over. People forget that cattle are related to bison and cape buffalo - two of the most dangerous animals on the planet.

    Bulls, they are often docile until around 18 to 24 months of age. Then can get VERY aggressive regardless of cows being in heat or your gender. When cows are in heat, just stay the fuck away, far away. We usually send our bulls to market after their first breeding around 2-3 years of age. After that they are too difficult for us to handle(two uncles, in their 60's and 70's). During that young docile period people often get acclimated to the gentle side, but forget what they turn into. Docile bulls after 3-4 years old are rare.

    Wire/wood fences aren't really a barrier to cattle. ...more of a courtesy marker. Added electric just only spooks back the docile critters, and only adds to anger an already hostile bovine if it is intent on coming after you.
